Agreed.

I hate running tracks like that. It just needlessly breaks parts. There no need for it. The hobby is expensive enough as it is. The rest of the track looks fun though...

I dont like tracks like that cause it doesnt prove in the end who was really the best. It proves who has the best luck of not breaking. I've talked to some guys there and they are going threw shock shafts and towers like they were tooth picks. They also said the track was blowing out badly in some places the ruts are so bad you cannot even see your buggy. But to all the guys racing there goodluck. I just wish LiveRC.com was covering the event.

I know when I talked to my friends at 5:00 ATL time that they just got finnished with the 1st round of quals. They shortend the quals to 3 / 10min quals instead of 4.The have over 350 racers.

Talking

As for the jumps being extreme,yes one of them is if you want it to be. Its a triple they call the,"The Leap of Faith". If you want to make the triple your buggy/truggy will be some 30 plus feet in the air. But considering the hang time, its not the only way to be quick. We set and timed cars during the first round, and taking the double/single is just as fast and much easier on equipment. So as for the word on broken parts, its the drivers choice to chance it or not.
